"To win an Award for something I wrote was way beyond my comprehension. I used to sit in Bars and talk about music and performing onstage, but thats all I did......is talk about it. I got sober and stopped doing drugs and things just started to happen. 20 years of active Drug and Alcohol abuse I had alot to write about. So I started writing and put some music to my words and before I knew it, I was out and about doin what I had always wanted to do my whole life..........play music."
